Has anyone considered making Qemu available through Fink? I have no real understanding of the work involved, but when I built Qemu from source I just installed libsdl through fink and it seemed like it would be great to be able to get the Qemu sources the same way.

EmuX gives the option of installing a 'working' Qemu on first run but if you decline subsequently offers no particularly obvious way of doing so. After doing an entire drive search for Qemu and deleting everything I could find, I was offered again.

This time I accepted and a 'working' qemu is placed into /Applications/Qemu. But it doesn't work. It is linked against /opt/local/lib/libSDL-1.2.0.dylib. Which is not a folder that anyone other than the superuser has access to. In fact nothing but that version of libSDL is in there so I assume it has been put in place by QemuX.

So I am still in the position where I have a qemu installed that is only runnable by root. Surely this can't be as intended? Is there some way to persuade qemu to use SDL elsewhere? I guess my only solution may be to build qemu for myself against a properly installed SDL framework.
